Giveaway: My Quotable Kid

by jessicaturner on May 4, 2009

Today I have a great giveaway. Watch this short video about the book My Quotable Kid: A Parents’ Journal of Unforgettable Quotes– and see Elias wave like a politician. :)

I am so excited about this book because I think it is so practical and easy for anyone to use – not just scrapbookers like me! Plus, the design is ADORABLE and it offers lots of room for you to write all the cute things your kids say.

To win a copy, leave a comment below with something quotable that your kid has said – or just say I want one! if you don’t have a memorable quote – and I will select three winners at random on Mother’s Day. (please only one comment per person)

I can’t wait to read your comments.

Good luck!

Okay, I have no children and won’t anytime soon, but I just have to say that a) your hair looks really cute in this video and b) omygoodness, Elias is so happy and ADORABLE!

The book looks really fun, too :)

This looks so great, considering I have little pieces of notebook paper stuck all over the house with stuff my kids have said. One of my favorites, “Mom, I think God and Jesus are up in Heaven having a picnic and drinking chocolate milk.” Brooke 5.5

Does ‘Ah goo’ count as memorable? It was for us. Also memorable recently was our son cooing at the top of his lungs after he had stood up by the side of his crib after bedtime.

Elias is so cute too! And yes, I want a book.

Hi Jessica
Thanx for the opportunity to tell this story. I love to tell it!!
My 4 year old son and I were outside and he was helping me pick weeds. We were talking about this and that, then he said “Mom? I want to call you majesty.”
I said “OK”
2 seconds later…
he said “Majesty? I want to call you Mom. I changed my mind.”
Oh that boy makes me laugh a lot!

Thanx for the giveaway!

I have a quote, from my grandson….while we were all sitting around eating dinner at Christmas time (entire family!) :) The ‘kids’ were sitting at their own little table…4 yr old, 3 yr old and a 2 yr old. When there is a lull in conversation and hub bub…you hear this from the 4 yr. old to his 3 yr. old cousin….”Hey Noah, save money, live better…Walmart!”….very random, but sooo cute. We adults had a good laugh. By the way…I think that Elias gets cuter every day!

Thanks for the opportunity.

I’ve got a couple of cute quotes to share. First a little background. My 3 year old daughter knows a little bit about heaven, but as it is such a “big” concept, her knowledge is not complete. Our dog “Bobo” died last year. A few months back, one of our fish died. We took the fish to the toilet and flushed him. Zoe questioned this, and we told her the fish was going to heaven. She thought about it for a minute and then asked, “Mommy, did you flush Bobo?” :o)

The next story also involves heaven. The “people” Zoe knows that are in heaven are her grandfather “Pat” and her dogs Bobo and Max. She is also aware that Jesus and George Washington are in heaven. We were leaving the grocery store one day and smelled chicken. Zoe was quick to say, “Bobo and Pat and George Washington and Max and Jesus are eating chicken!!!”

Little kids are SO cute!

Jessica,
When my son was about 7 he was on a little league team and all the kids were scrambling around the coach at a game to see if they could bat first. Well Dakota looked at this and jumped up on the bench and said, “The first shall be last and the last shall be first.” Cracks me up stil. I love that kid ~~ who is now 16 and still very quotable!!

Have a Blessed day,
Dawn

Elias gets cuter and cuter! He semes like such a HAPPY baby!

My Quotable Kid is Grant. He said this when he was almost 3 years old when he was sitting on the potty:

“It’s so big
It’s so big
You can’t eat it
It’s not a French fry
It’s a penis”

I’m told it’s a “boy-thing”…I’m hoping they are right because we also overheard him saying this while he was supposed to be napping:

“I love Gramma.
Gramma Loves Chicken.
Mommy Loves Chicken.
That’s my penis.”

Oh my Lord, my heart just burst WIDE OPEN!!!

I have a friend that just had twins, so I’ll do the drawing for her.

Funny quote: It would have to be when my niece was scolding us adults for swearing during a basketball game. She called a family meeting [she was 3] and told us she had heard bad language, proceeded to tell us the exact words she had heard, and then said, “In THIS family we use loving words. Like, good job, I love you, your hair is pretty!”

Even though she’s 16 now, we still tell each other “your hair is pretty” when we want to swear at them. :)

Your lil boy is just TOO adorable!
One day my 5 year old son found a dandelion in our yard and went to make a wish before he blew on it. I heard him very quietly, and very seriously say, "Oh how I wish I could be a LIGHTNING man!"
My kids are 5 & 6 so the things that come out of their mouths 95% of the time NEED to be written down! I've never seen anything like this book! If I don't win it, I'm definitely going to have to buy it! :)
Thank you for the opportunity!

When my daughter was three we were in the supermarket and came out with two priceless gems. she looked at an elderly woman and remarked, “She shouldn’t be driving!” and then after passing another woman she said, “she smells like mom Mom.” the woman was wearing the same perfume as her grandmother.

My son is just really getting to the point where he can say short phrases and he usually cracks us up. But I’ve never gotten them down on paper so please count me in on the drawing for this book. For his 2nd birthday, he kept saying it was his “Happy Party” and “Happy Cake.” I thought it was so cute.

I wish I had carried around a tape recorder for the past 5 years…there are so many random things that come out of my girls mouths that I would love to hear again. (it would also help me remember them!) :) What a great book! The most recent quote I can think of happened last week with my 19 mos old. She is obsessed with those plain Nature’s Path toaster pastries and will climb up into our pantry to try to get her hands on them. I finally got one for her and asked “will this make you happy?” she repeated “yes make you happy” and now every time she wants one she calls them “make you happy’s”. I guess it’s the little things! Enjoy your little one!

My 17 month old is just starting to say cute things. She calls boogers “bubbles” and little things like that. The best story I have though is about a little boy I used to babysit. He was 3 and potty training and his Granny took him to the bathroom in a restaurant. Now Granny had only had girls, so didn’t really know what to expect with a little boy. When Hunter was all done peeing, Granny handed him some t.p. He gave her a very condescending look and said “GRANNY! You don’t WIPE it, you SHAKE it!”

I would love this book!

My kids say some of the craziest things! I have two girls (10 and 5) and a new baby boy (2 months old), and wish I’d written down more of what the girls said as babies. Some recent things they’ve said are:

Lindsey (10) told me that Carter has “cinnamon roll hands” because he always has them in a little fist and the top looks like a cinnamon roll!

Emily told me today, “Carter is the next big thing. Every girl wants one.” She’s always saying something totally off the wall and funny!

My 2 1/2 yr old son says, It’s delicious. But it comes out selicious. The best part is he throws his hands in the air and shouts it.
My daughter who is 11 months, she says goola, we aren’t sure what it means but she says it all the time.
She also does something that isn’t audible, but when we tell her no no, she shakes her head because she knows it’s a no no.

A sure way to get comments: ask mamas to write about their babies!!

Okay, so I have a four year old son, Jackson, and a two year old son, Cooper James. They rule. Completely. And, they’re the funniest people I know. But, mostly, they’re the best truth-tellers in my life. Here are two submissions:

Last week, we were driving somewhere, and my four year old asked why I sit at the front of the church, instead of in the pew with him. (P.S. I’m a Methodist Minister, which entitles me to lots of polyester in my wardrobe, and special reserved seating on Easter Sunday.) Many of my friends are also clergy, and Jackson is pretty accustomed to being a PK so far. So, I explained that I sit up front with Reverend Jimmy, Reverend Phillip and Reverend Josh so that we can be close by to lead worship.

He paused and said: “I didn’t know boys could be Reverends.”

I consider the stained glass window cracked! J knows that most of my girl-friends are Reverend Kate, Reverend Jessica, or the like. His world is totally different than any we’ve known before. And I love it.

Second submission: Cooper, my two year old, stopped me one night as I was tucking him in and saying goodnight.

Cooper: Mom! I wanna tell you a secret!
Me: Okay, Bean, what is it?
Cooper: (whispered) Sponge Bob Square Bum!

Really – where do you even go with that?

Thanks, Jessica! It was great to meet 1/3 of your family this past week!

My 2 year old son (Jonah) says tacaloes for taco’s. It is too funny.

We have chickens and my husband would tell Jonah that he was going to check for eggs in the chicken coop and Jonah would say “gonna check for eggs in the chicken “Poop”. It was cute..

My 3 year old daughter’s funniest quote is actually a song. At Christmas time she went around singing “Jingle bells, Jingle bells, Jingle all the way. SoMuch fun it is to ride in a Walmart horse and Sleigh!” I keep track of the funny (and sometimes sad) things she says on a calender so that I can put it in her baby book at a more convenient time. What a great idea to have a separate book for ALL those funny sayings! My 18 month old son (whose middle name is Elias!)is starting to really talk now so I’m going to need to get 2 books!

That is such a cool book!

One funny thing I remember is the other day at dinner my 6 year old was making noises in his milk adn I told him that was not funny – then my 2 year old looked me right in the eye adn said, “That IS Funny!”

My 2yo son says funny things all the time! But this is the only one I can remember at the moment. It was a conversation between him & my husband:

My husband: Are you poopy?

Solomon: No.

My husband: Are you lyin'?

Solomon: ROAR!

I have another story, but it didn't involve my kids. Funny nonetheless! During dinner with some friends I excused myself to the restroom. There were 2 little girls in there, probably around 6-7 yrs old. I started for the first stall when the youngest stopped me & said, "This is the kids' toilet. You have to go use the grown-up one down there," & pointed to the handicap stall! She was too cute :)

Wow, I have so many funny comments to choose from. A few weeks ago at church, my 3 year old daughter was dropping her cheerios on floor and stepping on them. Once we noticed, we told her that she cannot do that. The next week, she looked into the aisle and did not see her cheerios and said, “Look Mommy, Jesus cleaned up my cheerios.”

Okay so I have 2 kids, 5 and 2. They both say things that crack us up, I’ve been writing them down forever.

A few of my favorites Parker has said:
“I don’t care to me” — it was her cross between I don’t care and it doesn’t matter.
“Be Hush” for be quiet.
“Aligator” for elevator.

Grant is not as big of a talker as his sister but here’s some of my favorites of his …
“Mickey House” for Mickey Mouse,
“Par-ter” for his sister Parker and everything is “Pink” if you ask him what color something is. All tigers are “GO TIGERS!” whether or not they have our school logo.

I hope you enjoy these quotes as much as we do.

okay that little elias is too cute! he was hilarious sucking on that book and waving his hands! what a fun book…

lets see- the most recent funny thing my 3 year old said— he is really into learning how to pause music or DVD (helps to make a smooth transition into doing something else) and we call it “Freezing”. Well on the way to mother’s day out we were listening to the Pinnochio Music CD. He went in and told his teachers we “froze Jiminy Cricket in the car”. They looked at me like i was crazy and i had to explain the whole story like i did above. Their little minds are so funny sometimes!

I don’t have a child YET (working and praying hard on that), but I am a preschool teacher and have heard some whoppers. This is a recent discussion I had with one of my students who I will call “Johnny:”

Me: Johnny, what do you want to be when you grow up?

J: A parent.

Me: Why do you want to be a parent?

J: So I can punish people when they are bad.

Me: OK, draw me a picture of you being a parent.

(Johnny draws a picture of a big person with big hands and a little person next to him.”

Me: Tell me about your picture.

J: This is me (pointing to the big person) and I am punishing this kid because he kicked someone else in the weiner.

It was hard not to laugh. Johnny has some middle-child issues.

Okay, so I was babysitting a 4 year old boy one day and I was talking to my mom on the phone and I told her that i had the cutest picture of my daughter and I was going to blow it up. They 4 year old boy that I was watching starts bawling so hard and so uncontrollable. I tried and tried to find out what was wrong. When he finally stopped crying, he said “Please don’t blow up Micah, I will take her home with me.” I started laughing and tried to explain to him that I was going to make the picture bigger, not blow her up.

My son saw a snail on our step the otehr day and we talked about it (he’s only 3 1/2) and he finally stood up and said, “I snail, my name is Aidan!” then we decided to name the snail…he decided on “snail banana peel!” Only a 3 1/2 year old could come up with something so clever!!

LOVE this book and LOVE your blog. My husband and I took our two daughters (3 and almost 2) to the animal shelter in hopes of getting a kitten. They didn’t have any but we did go through the long row of kenneled dogs. We were the only ones there and as we were walking by my daugher (3) stopped and looked a dog straight in the eye and said “Hey DOG! Watch me tap dance!” and proceeded to show the dog her tap routine like it was the most normal thing in the world to say to him.

This morning I was wearing a cute new spring dress to school (I teach first grade). It has a keyhole circle cutout just below the neckline. I picked my 2 year old up for one last hug before I headed out the door, and he asked, “Mommy, what’s dat??” and pointed to the circle. I told him it was part of my dress. He looked puzzled and said, “Mommy, why dat DOOR on your dress?” then stuck his hand in it! Cracked me up!

Isavbelle isn’t old enough to have said anything quotable yet (just 16 months old). However last week we got baby ducks on our farm and when one of the ducklings was 2 inches from her face she screamed “QUACK!”. Also later on our daily farm tour she said “they eating” while watching the cows eat! I was in AWE!

Anyways, unfortunately I do not have children of my own, yet…I pray someday I will. However, I have a 3 month old nephew who I would love to have this book for. Actually, I’d gift it to my sis, but I’d make her keep track of what he says for his Auntie!! :)

Hey! Love the video and Elias is growing like a weed….

I don’t have kids, but if I would win one…I would graciously give it as a gift to my sister (Leila)…..

Joseph is talking up a storm right now….well, okay talking up a storm as a 1 year old can…. He can do pretend sneezes….saying “ahhhh chooo”….signing and saying “all done”…and telling us what noises the cow, the sheep, the dog, and the cat make…still doesn’t have the duck down quite yet….

Lastly, I am still in the process of getting myself to Nashville…..each day gets me a step closer.

What a great idea! One of my favourite quotes is more a story…my 2 yr old son wanted to be my mom for the day, and so he was trying to take care of me. He decided that it was lunch time, and had me sit down to eat…and then with a very serious look on his face, he raised his hands and said, “But Mommy, I have no food for you!” He was so concerned that he had no food…and such an earnest tone to his voice made my heart melt.

This book would be fantastic…I have quotes written in so many places around my house, I’ll never find them!

The latest from my 5 year-old:
I sometimes (OK, many times) say “use your eyeballs” when he’s looking for something and can’t find it. (He’s notorious for standing right ON. TOP. of the “elusive” item and still can’t seem to find it.) Last week, I asked him something, and couldn’t hear his answer. When I told him I couldn’t hear him and to please repeat, he said, without missing a beat, “use your earballs.” Sigh. That Zachary. :)

Reply

Paul & Angela Jenkins May 5, 2009 at 1:21 am

Okay where to begin on the quotes. I have 2 kids so I’ll try to keep it short.
Son at 5 – “when I get bigger I’ll turn the lock around and lock you OUT of my room and eat all the bowls of cereal I wantt and when I’m done I’ll unlock the door and come out.” This was said b/c he had had 2 adult size bowls of cereal already and we wouldn’t give him a 3rd. He’s really really tall so needs a lot of food.

Another one at 5. He gets $.25 for good behavior at school. He came home one day without good behavior and lost his quarter to which I said “Man you aren’t going to get your quarter today. You could have had a quarter.”
His reply. “That’s okay I didn’t need it. When my tooth comes out I get $1.00 and tomorrow I get my report card where I get 25 cents per A so I didn’t need this quarter.”

My daughter age 3. “Mom you have 3 choices….” Then she proceeds to give me the same 3 choices for what she wants to do and says “Now what do you choose?” Of course we point out their behavior is a choice which bring consequences. Too funny.

Another one for daughter. She touched me once and said “Your hot mommy”. Me: Yes dear, her: “Stop drop and roll mommy. If your whole body is hot then you have to stop drop and roll.”

So his answer to who built the ark? “Shut up stupid Noah.” The teacher asked him what he had said, thinking she had misunderstood him.

My grand daughter is 21 months old and we think everything she says is “cute”, She constantly comes out with one, two or three worders that make us laugh all day. She is very bright and is counting really well, she is starting to count on her own. But if you want her to count for you you get her started by saying, “say One”, she says two, three, fowa, fii, siis , seva, eight, only to eight so far. But she won’t say ONE. Every time we say, “say One” she starts counting from Two. She say Melmo, for Elmo, and ALL dogs are “bobo’s” because that is her dog’s name. Every day is filled with new words. And cuteness.

I have a spot on my blog that I try to type the funny things my girls (2 & 4) say. We always have a good laugh when we look back over them;) One of my favorites was Marryn(4) talking to Reganne(2), referring to our scale…

"Come on Reganne, let's see how much your feet cost!"

I have since explained what a scale is…

I am 13 days from my due date with our 3rd son. My 5yr old son Gabriel has been distressed about my increasingly growing belly. Months ago he told me “I don’t want you to be a giant meatball mom”, a few days ago he ran up to my belly, touched it and called me Santa Claus. If nothing else – he makes me laugh at myself!! :)
Have a great day!

My FIL was asking my little boy (1 1/2 at the time) where the different parts of the body were. When asked where his knees were, Ethan said, “Achoo!”

Sounds like a great book!

My son isn’t really saying anything “Quotable” yet as he is only 15 months old. But I would love to have this book when he does… Awsome find!

I love the whole idea of that book! I am always trying to find a way to add some of the clever or funny things my granddaughter says to her scrapbooks, but this is an excellent idea. This is what happened recently at the zoo, my little one ran in front of a statue of 2 lions and asked that I take her picture. When her Mom commented on how smart she was she replied “Not particularly. I just wanted my picture taken.”

Where to begin, where to begin…?
Here’s one of the most recent from my now 5-year old, Elly, but then 4-year old…
Her brother, Elijah age 2, was doing something that caught my attention and my discipline. Unfortunately for Elijah his speech sounds are not developing quickly, so in his best 2-year old jargon/baby talk he let me know that he was totally unhappy with me taking his toy/weapon away from him. Elly did not miss a beat…”Mommy, I know that you can’t understand what Elijah just said, but I did. And he just told you that ‘you’re not in charge’!” What a sweetheart trying to help me out like that, huh?!?!

Hope all is well with you and your family! Have a good day!

Blessings~

She doesn’t say much, but she walks around the house and will drop things on the floor and say “Uh, oh” each time.

My son just turned two recently, and he is talking quite a bit, with new words all the time, but he hasn’t put enough words together to be really funny yet. I’m sure those days will be here soon, so a journal would be perfect. I’d love to win one!

LOVE the book idea! This was a recent melt your heart moment from our 3 year old. I had said, “Isaiah, I’m so glad you’re my boy” and he responded affectionately with “Mommy, I’m so glad you’re my girl.” It just keeps getting better and better. =) Enjoy because it goes by way too fast.

I love the idea of this book and have been thinking of creating one for my daughter. I guess when she was about 3 or 4(see I need to write it down), my husband and I were traveling in the car and she took her shoes off. When we were getting ready to arrive at the grandparents, I told her I did not want her in her bare feet and to put her shoes on. She kept crying and every time I would say it, she would get more upset and I couldn’t figure out why. I finally asked her why, and she said adamantly through tears, “I do not have bear’s feet, I have princess feet!.”

My sons have the privalage of staying with my stepmom and dad on Wednesdays while I am at work. My dad told me that she has been writing down phrases my three year old says. This would be a great mothers day present for her as well as showing my appreciation for the time she takes to record such pricless treasures!!

My son William (22 months) says lots of random things. My favorite is when he shouts, “I want sprinklewaters!” when he wants to go outside to see the sprinklers.

P.S. Elias is super cute as always!

Here’s a favorite from my son who is now 8 years old. He was about 4 when this happened.

We were trying to help him remember his left and right so I showed him the trick with your hands where the left hand makes an ‘L’, so that it could help him remember it was his left hand and left side. Mind you, he had a slight speech impediment at that time…

Burke: But Mom, wouldn’t it be a ‘W’ for “Weft”?

Trying not to die laughing, I explained it was an ‘L’, pronounced “left”. We still roll about it with friends to this day–just not in front of him. He’s still a little sensitive about it… :)

When our son was eighteen months old, he started crawling up our stairs. I saw him one day and went through the whole “Are you supposed to be on the stairs without Mommy or Daddy?” routine. He answered, “no,” and went on to point to the dog and said, “but puppy is on the stairs!”

Yikes. Logic. At eighteen months. He’s now two and continuing to talk up a storm. (I highly recommend teaching some basic sign language between 4 and 8 months. Our little guy’s language skills seemed to be jump-started by this choice.)

My oldest (3) is into asking for EVERYTHING that is advertised on tv. She also will mimic the actors in the commercials. Right now, the funniest thing she has asked for is back pain. Yes= back pain. I walked into the playroom the other day & she was hunched over holding her back & she said "Mama, I want back pain."
I said no you don't, stop that. She says: "but Mama, I really need it." lol

My just turned one-year-old is not a big fan of the sippy cup but we keep giving it a try. The other day my nine-year-old held the baby firmly on his lap and told him that he was “going to take the sippy cup and he was going to like it” as he was shoving it in his mouth. I wonder where he got that line from:)

My son says the funniest things on a daily basis. These two are my absolute favorite. He is two and a half.

I am three weeks away from giving birth to my second child. I was getting dressed after my shower and I hear Mason say, “Mommy scratch herself.” I look down at my stomach where he is pointing and I realize he is talking about my stretch marks. LOL!

A few months ago my son was being exceptionally cranky, unlike himself. He kept crying for no reason and proceeded to throw a fit. We put him in time out. I was trying to remain calm and asked him,
“Why are you being such a cranky pants?”
He screams at me,
“No am cranky pants!”
“Yes you are a cranky pants.” I insist.
Mason then throws his hands up as if in frustration that we are so dumb and very sternly says to me,
“No cranky pants. I not wearing any pants!”
He had a point, he wasn’t wearing pants, just a t-shirt and his pull-ups. My husband and I burst out in laughter after that, unable to control ourselves, and the time out ended.

Hope your getting a kick out of these comments. Kids really say the cutest, most hysterical things sometimes. Makes all the “bad moments” totally worth it.

Today my 6 year old daughter was talking about the bathing suit she had lasy year. It had monkeys on it, even on the butt. My four year old son said, “Oh yeah, that bathing suit was so cute. The monkeys were so cute, but your butt…it was not cute.”

This followed after the day he prayed at lunch, “Thank you, Jesus for this day, this food, my friends and (as he opened his eyes and glanced at his sister and smiled) my sister, Kari”. He can be sweet, too.

I have four kiddos, and they’ve said many quotable and unquotable things through the years! The most recent quotable saying that struck my fancy happened was this week and was spoken by my six year old son who said, “Mama, what did daddy ever do without you?” (asked while I was folding laundry and watching a casserole to be sure it didn’t burn). Sometimes I wonder myself! At any rate, I felt needed, and my son’s question made me happy. Thanks for the giveaway!

Too many to go through in my brain, at this time. But, with 3 girls…you know that I have heard alot of talking!!!

My oldest…when she was 4yo, asked me, out of the blue one day,
“Mom? what color was the sky on the day that Jesus died?”
I was speechless.

Well, I have six sons. Not a girl in the bunch. And there is NO shortage of laughter around here. I remember when I just had two boys and they were about 2 and 4 years old. We were at the zoo with a friend who had NO kids. My youngest was going through a phase where he put the word “head” on the end of EVERYTHING. (poopoo head, birdhead, candyhead….you get the idea). Well, there we are at the zoo eating in this outdoor picnic area FULL of people. There are geese roaming about freely and pecking for food all over the place and scaring my boys. SO…my two year old, who is standing on the bench trying to stay away from the geese yells in FULL voice…”Get away you PECKER HEADS!” I was mortified. I mean, it sounded as if we used that word freely around our house as forcefully as he used it but I promise you…it was a coincidental match borne out of his love for all things ending in the word HEAD! Still makes me laugh. I could go on but that will just have to do! Melissa Hutsell from Arkansas.

My 3 year old daughter Katelyn said something quotable to me just today. She has a new baby sister who is now 10 weeks old just to give you background. Katelyn has been asking me for a hamster lately and I’ve been putting her off. Today I finally asked her why she wanted a hamster. Her response, “because hamsters are better than baby sisters!” She definitely keeps us laughing.

My son was learning about the brain in science class and thought he would share with us. He said, mom did you know that a “GRANDMA” seizure is the worst thing that can happen to your brain? I cracked up it was the funniest thing I had ever heard at the time. He didn’t believe us when we told him it was Grand-Mal! Thanks for letting me share the memory :))
